Description: Matlock Meadows is a modern purpose built ice cream parlour and coffee...
Matlock Meadows is a modern purpose built ice cream parlour and coffee shop set within a working dairy farm. The farm has diversified by making italian style hand made ice cream here on the farm using the fresh milk from our dairy herd. The coffee shop serves 15 flavours of ice cream, also sorbet's, ice cream sundaes, a range of hot and cold drinks and snacks, giftware and local produce. In the adjacent field and barn we have micro pigs, rabbits, sheep, chickens, cows and calves. We are a real working dairy farm rather than a major visitor attraction therefore we do not charge any entrance fees however we rely on the income generated from the shop sales and would politely like to point out that Car parking, use of facilities/toilets and access to the animals is free of charge for patrons of the coffee shop only. The farm has disabled access and facilites and can accommodate educational group/school visits also childrens birthday parties.

Absolutely gorgeous ice cream! I have never had a nicer blue banana ice cream anywhere else- it's to die for! As for the parlour itself, the setting is stunning and the staff are really friendly; not to mention you get an immense amount of ice cream for your money!

I often cycle here with my family and friends. The owners have done really well to provide a lovely ice cream parlour/café off the beaten track. We love the ice cream, so many lovely flavours. They do good cakes and sandwiches, all very nice. It does have a bit of an odour de farm but it is a working one... More

The best flavoured ice creams in the area all made on site. The family owners are very friendly. Recommend a visit if you are in the area

A little gem of a place. Delicious ice cream made on the premises, animals to feed, tractors to ride and a lovely welcome. This place is a great find for a few hours out with the children, free to go, with a small fee to use the tractors. The food is simple but delicious, I would recommend the tomato and... More

Sundays would not be complete without a visit to Matlock Meadows for an ice-cream or three. Loads of different flavours, lovely friendly staff, a sofa to sit on and Peppa pig to scratch! What's not to love? You could also indulge in real food if the mood takes you. There are sheep, rabbits, cows and hens, for those not quite... More

Amazing ice cream made with the milk from the cows on the farm. There are also small farm animals pigs, chickens, rabbits etc so a fun place to take children (or big children!).

We went to the open day back in the early summer. I write this review as the kids are still taking about it- the weather was great which helped and we left just before it rained. The stalls were fab and we bought some craft items. The tractor rides showed me just how vast the farming area is that you... More

What a fabulous find. We intended to stop here briefly and ended up stopping a few hours! The children loved the animals, Calves they could stroke and watch being fed their milk, sheep, a pig called Pinky I think, rabbits & baby rabbits and of course the farmyard cat, who was a real cutie. There is a viewing area to... More
